Student Mental Health and Well-being

A boost to student mental health in 2017

McMaster’s safeTALK program has been boosted thanks to student and young alumni gifts to the Student Wellness Centre.  The funding will support this program for three years.  In 2017, these vital resources were made possible:

  • A safeTALK trainer
  • 187 trained student suicide-alert helpers
  • A specialized caregiver for suicide intervention
